Breaking ground downtown: "extensive community engagement" no one’s heard about

By DJ Kelly November 16, 2007

As an update to Wednesday’s post about Calgary’s Urban Campus Initiative I read in the latest issue of U Magazine, U of C’s alumni magazine, where there is a little footnote under their Capital Plan Update page saying:

Following the proposal of a business plan to the province, the Urban Campus Partnership has entered into a phase of extensive community engagement to ensure that all stakeholders have an opportunity to participate in advancing this project.

That’s it. That’s the UofC’s latest public word on this massive project. “Extensive community engagement.” I haven’t heard any word on what this will actually be but it sounds like it’ll be so big we should have heard something by now. That or the project is stalled somewhere in the process.
